Halloween totem pole

Time for another Compendium of Curiosities v.2 challenge.  Number 17 is all about being creative with core'dinations cardstock, which can be found on p. 61 of the book.  This week's challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and they're offering a $25 gift certificate to one lucky, randomly picked, winner.

As you know, I can't tell you exactly how I made this but I can share with you the products I used.

Sizzix/Tim Holtz:  pumpkin, branch, crow, cat mini dies; Halloween background embossing folder

core'dinations:  distress and kraft

Ranger:  Black Soot, Seedless Preserves, Gathered Twigs distress inks; CH matte multi-medium

Halloween tag token, jump rings, purple/white twine

It's only the middle of August but it's looked like fall for quite some time.  Might as well be creating for it I guess.


  1. Love your totem, very clever and perfect colors.

  2. This is so cool, Susan! I just love it!

  3. Oh how fun! Love your tag! Just plain cool!

  4. Looks awesome! Love the branch hanging down and how you've colored the embossed parts.
